beautiful plant. planted inground, moist area, part shade. I've read where you should cut the reverting (all green) leaves but I didn't do it last year because I wouldn't have had much of a plant left. But I do plan to do it this year, as I see it a lot more variegation in its 2nd year. Plant only got about 1 ft tall in its first year, supposed to get 3-4 ft tall. It will be absolutely stunning when it grows that tall for me.
